in the oil market where the international energy agency has released another monthly report saying they see the global demand growth for oil sliding in this quarter and next year. they reduced the forecast there. we're also seeing production that is coming back online from the north sea. that's pressuring present crude prices and we expect to see another increase in crude supplies here in the u.s. for the weekly supply report. that also adding pressure to the wti contract. the only bright spark in the marketplace is natural gas. it is up for the second straight session. and there we may see a withdrawal from storage. first of the season as we get into the winter months. colder temperatures ahead also could help prop up natural gas futures. we're going to get that report on thursday from the energy information administration. i'm trying to get my acronyms straight here. on thursday we'll also get the oil report. it's going to come a day later because of the veterans day holiday. back to you guys. >> there are a lot of letters in your part of the world. >> there are. there are. >> thanks a lo
that inflation forecast of unexpectedly large rise in home energy prices. and annoy saying inflation falling the second half of 2013 and they'll only hit the 2% target in mid 2014. so basically they're going to hit their target almost a year later than they forecast, just three months ago. so in three months, they have pushed out their target of inflation by a year. so what we're seeing now is the sterling gains against the dollar. guilt futures are extending their losses on this report because clearly it suggests they'll be reluctant to do any more qe, let alone the fact they're also questioning its efficacy as well. economic growth to fall back sharply in the fourth quarter. rpi over 3%. the squeeze on real incomes in the uk continues because of this higher inflation profile. they say use of profits from bond purchase to pay government debt the same as 35 billion of qe. that's just to remind you that what's going to happen now is the government is going to take back the interest it's already paid to the bank of england and take it back, which is what they do in japan and the u.s. anyway. >
are logging losses since last week. the laggards, tech, energy, and financials. on the plus side, we're seeing consumer staples, health care, and telecom. those are the ones that have lost the least. financials, not really a surprise in terms of the laggards because president obama represents more regulation. to the energy group, he represents support of alternative energy, which in turn is bad for the oil and gas companies. with regard to technology, more regular arelation and financials could mean that private equity and venture capital firms suffer a bit. thus, tech would too. the groups that lost the least, consumer tapes, health care, and telecom, health care stocks include the hospitals. those could see a bit of a benefit when obamacare comes into play. some investors hoping that with the election behind us, we're going to see some green. with the threat of the fiscal cliff, many are expecting red as we approach the end of the year. back over to you. >> all right, jack. thanks very much. don't go anywhere. a trio of exclusive interviews kicking off the next hour of the "closing bell." >>

to meet with the president, anything from walmart to duke energy to ursula burns of xerox and nine others. they will gather up, they will huddle up and exchange ideas to try to find a fix for the fiscal cliff. the question is, how much is the president willing to give on spending cuts, how much is the gop willing to perhaps give on tax increases and revenue enhancements, and what will the ceos say, ask and demand? eamon javers here also at the white house as we have full team coverage and he has got the ceo part of the story. >> brian, i think one of the key questions going into this ceo meeting as we wait their arrival on the north lawn of the white house is how do these ceos react to the more than $1 trillion figure now that's been floated by the white house for new tax revenues, is that something that they find dismaying, that they feel like they can't even start the negotiations with a number that big? remember that the negotiations last year between boehner and obama really focused on $800 billion figure. now the white house is floating a much larger number. how do those ceos react?
.s. manufacturing driven by very low energy prices. we're self-sufficient energy for the first time in years. another company like ppg, they really own the coatings business, about 70% of revenues from coatings, they're growing 4% to 6% organically and end the year with $2.5 billion in cash. they just sold their business, another $1 billion, that $3.5 billion in cash, 60% go to grow the business, 40% return to shareholders. you've got 5%, 6% top line, 10%, 12% net income growth with stock buy back and dividend going up 15% a year. you get 2% while you wait. if things -- if we don't do it on a fiscal cliff and things get worse, not going to get hurt. >> where did you buy comcast? >> comcast we've owned for a couple of years. that's another one that has morphed into a return of capital story. when we bought it just superior business model in a tough environment. if things get better, great, employment improves, we're going to have more hook-ups, housing improves, more connections, great growth story. if things don't get better, we're trying to protect for the downside and keep that optionalty
that does give me some concern is the 2% fica. as near as our analysts can tell, there is no energy to continue that going into next year. >> the payroll tax cut. >> the payroll tax cut. and so the concern is as we go into the holiday shopping season or just coming out of of the holiday shopping season, the average worker is going to find their take home pay go done by 2%. so the defense sequestration is likely to be dealt with and in our opinion, we'll have some kind of extension of the bush tax cuts in our opinion. but as near as we can tell, that will still be a hit to the average consumer as we go into the end of this year and the beginning of next. >> you said that your strategy in terms of allocation is that you do believe some sort of agreement will be met. does that mean that you are heavily weighted towards stocks because you think the market will rally when and if there is a deal? >> no. i trimmed my overweight position in equities in the allocation strategies earlier this year because i felt that the economy was decelerating, that had to be reflected in corporate earning.

technology business is growing so solutions like that are places we're putting a large amount of our energy behind but we're also counting on the federal government to help us with some certainty, one part has been solved, we have a president for the next four years, now we have to get fiscal tax issues resolved so we can solidify, our customers can feel better and question participate more with them. >> to that point you are meeting with the president, one of many ceos who will be meeting with him tomorrow i believe. what do you plan to tell the white house at that point? what is the most important issue and how do you come at it in terms of giving him some feedback for what the business communities sees in all of this? >> first thing we'll do is listen a little bit to what he has to say and what his plans are for the second term, but i think the business community and me in particular have been very clear. we need a solution to this fiscal cliff that's coming. i have to believe that logic will prevail here with some hard work and it will get a solution and we also need a tax policy that i
thoughts. . let's check out latest moves in energies and metals. i don't know if gold going up is good. >> let's look at oil first because oil is basically unchanged from where it was yesterday at the close. not much has changed in terms of what traders are paying attention to. they're looking, as mary mentioned, at the fiscal cliff and worries over that as well as worries over what's happening in europe. that's weighing on the market. even the positive data out of china was not enough to boost crude oil prices. the part of the energy sector seeing some momentum, it's gasoline futures. today gasoline rationing has hit new york city. mayor bloomberg putting that into effect. can you only fill up on every other day based on your license plate number so that's something traders are talking about as well because many traders here on this floor are affected by that. we're also looking at gold prices at a tree-week high. it may not be a good thing because it's a safe haven bid. tradesers worried about the fiscal cliff. also thinking maybe we'll see more accommodative policy, another reason t
at large. you have health care. you have media. you have energy. retail. they're all being transformed by technology or being tech enabled. we've made investment in a health care company, but the way to think about it is anything that creates efficiency and accuracy with high return on investment for the health care companies by just providing better information and better analytics to help provide health care will take significant cost out of the health care system. once again, you're sitting in the sweet spot of where fiscal policymakers are trying to move towards. >> look, even i know that the cloud and mobility are good gret opportunities right now, but presumably, you guys are 100 miles down the road ahead of us. what are we going to be talking about in five years or ten years in technology growth? >> i think -- one of the big opportunities that we're focused right now on is the disruption of these other industries. having technology and seeing technology sort of transform them. think about, you know, what will financial services look like five years from now? how will we be consu
, pound of flesh, social policy, energy policy and economic policy! how long before they come crashing in. >> i think they're there already and they are keeping a watchful eye on their president right now to make sure that he doesn't abandon them on those issues too quickly, but i think we'll have to come down to finding that common ground and i think it will be in the cold of december before we really get there because a realization will have to upon happen and john boehner tre tried to make that clear this week and if we'll have a fight strictly on tax rates, the republican house will not vote for higher tax rates. that's not going happen and i'm going to think today of the 230-plus house republicans which ones might be vulnerable for opposing higher tax rates and i can't think of any. i mean, they are unified here and they're representing their dift recs and they've won one, if not two leches on their policy and they're not going anywhere so that has to come off the table and we have to start talking about some of these new ideas as difficult as they are, steve is right. these tax expe
at invensense. >> two in a row. we've got some real homework to do. louis in texas. >> caller: sandridge energy. sd. >> not unlike magnum hunter being challenged by a big holder. tom ward has cobbled together a lot of about g. properties for sandridge, but oil needs to be up big for this thing to work and oil's not. so the stock is going to languish and lose points. let's go to joe in maine. joe! >> caller: yes. hi, jim. my stock is arena pharmaceuticals. arna. >> even in a good market, i don't want to own arena because it's got competition from vivus and because i don't believe in the diet drugs. but you've got a chance to sell and you should do that. jim in arizona. >> caller: ak steel. >> when this stock was higher i said sell sell sell. the company argued its case to me. i said okay, i'll present the other side. the other side, their case was wrong. the stock is going lower. it's very difficult to own a steel stock, even nucor. i don't want to touch it. let's go to grant in hawaii. grant. >> caller: bwa. borg warner and considering buying more -- >> i waent you to hold off on that. why? bec
and the last administration. look at energy. look at private cultivation. look at texas. look at oklahoma. look at north dakota. they're creating jobs. then look at the epa. certainly growth is the only way out. we talk about cutting spending. we're not even cutting the baseline. we're cutting the growth in spending. >> what about jim's point of view that the deficit as a percentage of gdp is declining? >> i don't believe his math. i see trillion-dollar deficits for the last several years. i see us fighting over 2, 3, or 4 trillion over ten years when we still have a trillion every year for the last three. it doesn't add up. i don't know what jim is looking at. >> well, it's not my number. it's numbers from the government itself. >> that's good. >> the big decision you have to make when you apply fiscal austerity is how fast and how aggressive do you apply it while trying to improve the deficit but also maintain and not hamper the recovery or end the recovery. i would ask rick and everyone this, the question you have to ask yourself, who's best equipped to make that decision? is it a bunch of e
of education, energy, homeland security, interior, justice, state. in fact, it's more than we spend at all of them combined. maria, if we do nothing, by the year 2020, we'll be spending over $1 trillion a year on interest cost alone. that's $1 trillion we can't spend in this country to educate our kids or to rebuild our infrastructure or to do high-valuated research. unfortunately, it is $1 trillion that's going to be spent in those countries we're borrowing from. we'll be building the infrastructure in asia. we'll be educating those kids over there. it means we'll be building their universities so the research is done over there so the next new thing is created over there so the jobs of the future are there, not here. that's crazy. >> i think i know the answer to this next question, but i mean, what is a better outcome for the long-term fiscal health of the country? kicking the can down the road or leaving the status quo on spending and taxes or going over the fiscal cliff? i mean, do we need to go over the fiscal cliff with the four spending cuts and tax hikes to get things moving? >> th
elsewhere. >> the american society of civil engineers gives our energy infrastructure a d-plus grade. look that the devastation two weeks after the storm hit. i give our infrastructure an f. this is infrastructure. this is america. this is 2012. this is two weeks after the storm hit. this is despicable. screws come from all over the united states to help in this recovery effort. i'm joined here by jerry up from nashville, tennessee. jerry, talk to me about the communication. what was it like when you first got up here? >> it seems like it was slow, real, real slow here. you know, seemed like people -- seemed like a lot of people didn't know what was going on. >> one of the biggest questions facing all of nassau county is that they don't have utility poles. they have been waiting for poles, the rulers were the poles were coming down from montreal. there were other stories that the poles were in customs, immigration was holding them up. well, guess what, we found the poles. when did these polls get delivered here to the park, do you know? >> i have no idea. i have only about here since satur
so much. the latest news in energy and metals. i hope oil comes back up. let's go to sharon epperson at the nymex. >> jim, we are seeing more trade in the oil market but that's after the biggest one-day dollar and percentage decline we have seen all year in the price of crude oil. we are looblging at oil prices right around the $85 a barrel mark here and looking at some support perhaps of the greek austerity plan and also some weakness that could pressure prices based on the economic data out of germany. we're continuing to watch the volatility here in the oil complex but when you look at it, really, we're right where we were at friday's close so basically where we started the week. also keeping our eye on the gold price. the key level traders say is 1721 for gold and the high we reached earlier in the session in this session and we're continuing to watch whether or not the fact that we're going to give a continuation of the fed monetary policy wins out over the overall weakness this week in the complex. keeping our eye on it. natural gas also coming up. back to you. >> thank you, sh
came out and it's something oprah and i talked a lot about. we needed more fun and energy, oprah needed to be on more often. oprah came on the network in the beginning of january and we had been on the air already for almost a year. >> she wishes she would have been on from the get-go. >> even if she was, it still would have taken. you have to make your mistakes, your stumbles, learn from it and move forward. when oprah is on own, we're usually a top five network in america, we also have "sweetie pies" a lot of talk characters during the day but the length of view is about 90 minutes so people are spending a lot of time with it. >> that's so important. >> the network is one of the fastest growing cable networks in america. >> that was going to be my question it's a pure cable play which you'd like to have because of the dual revenue stream but it's difficult to be in cable channel play if all your channels stink. if you do, then you have something and it becomes international now, that's what you're doing. >> when i got to discovery we had 13 channels in the u.s. and six channels in 00
petrol price and other energy price increases. but to a certain extent as well, the food price increases which we're beginning to see, and likely to see more of reflect changinged food presences, increasing prices for wheat even though spikes in corn and wheat prices that we've seen have been largely due to weather factors. but demands are the pressure, as well. >> for anyone trying to figure out what's going organization how sustainable are the inflation rates and are they not going to fall precipitously as the fee hikes come out. >> there will be, but if you look at the university tuition fees, that will be there for three years. it's not just something that will disappear in 12 months time. and that's an important point because when the bank of england presents it inflation forecast tomorrow, it will have to count those increases in fee as a medium term inflation pressure. they'll be there throughout the entirety of hair projections this time around. and then that has some effect on the policy making decisions. >> is that is t. for the 375, they're done? >> we suspect it probably is.
